Path by Mark Dorf
- Esther Jablotschkin
Young artistic photographer Mark Dorf created his latest series ‘Path’, which explores the ideas of new technology and digital language in the human context through digital photography. Within the images he focuses on using strict geometric and synthetic form to contrast against the landscape in which they are manifested; a comparison of language. Focusing on the landscape and our modern digital language, Mark Dorf seeks to understand our aggressive capture and digitization of our surroundings through very basic use of pure color and the native tools of contemporary digital imaging that we use to create meaning and manipulation in mass media.
‘I specifically find interest in the ways in which we have become dependent upon this technology to help aid us in our navigation of our every day and how it affects our perception of the world around us all socially, emotionally, and physically – it is no longer about logging on or off, but rather living within and creating harmony with the realms and constructs of the internet for our newest generation of inhabitants.’
